Designer Ranking System – How Does It Work?

Designers can receive the following badges in contests:

Gold - 1st place
Silver - 2nd place
Bronze - 3rd place
Finalist - 4th to 10th place.

The ranking system orders by:  Golds, Silvers, Bronze, and Finalists.  Golds are the initial sorting criteria, with silvers, bronzes, and finalists being the tie breakers.  (Similar the the Olympic system)
